Publisher's Description

Think of the little girls you know: your daughter, a niece, a friend's child. And then think about this: little girls are tossed away every day. All over the world, women and girls face
  • starvation
  • displacement
  • illiteracy
  • sexual exploitation
  • abuse
In fact, statistics show that the world's most oppressed are overwhelmingly female. Moved by their plight, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett took a trip across continents to partner with ministries working to help females and to interview girls in some of the most difficult places in the world. These pages hold those girls' stories: stories of deep pain and suffering, inspiring courage, and incredible hope. They are the stories of girls who have discovered their value in God's eyes, in the midst of cultures that have rejected them. They are stories of rescue and redemption by God working through compassionate people--people like you. These pages might hold pieces of your story as well, as the authors invite you to pray and speak on behalf of the millions of women and girls who still need to know how much they're worth. For each of the five sections of the book--physical suffering, education, sexual protection, prison and war, and spiritual life--the authors provide specific, practical action steps and prayer points that allow you to get involved as God leads. Opening these pages will open your eyes to situations you couldn't imagine, to places you've probably never been and to young girls--not so different from the ones you know--who are dearly loved by God. And our powerful God will help us as we read, speak and pray on their behalf, that the forgotten might become free.

Editorial Reviews

"Through riveting, firsthand accounts, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett take you on a mind-blowing, heart-expanding global expedition as they tell stories of the most defenseless and voiceless of our time--women and children. Forgotten Girls is an unforgettable read, one that can convert our lack of awareness into meaningful, urgent action!"
The stories in Forgotten Girls are not easy to read, but they will change you. You'll learn about obscure and little-known cultural and societal practices around the world, from Africa to Asia--and you'll find that today's injustices pare down to the names, faces, nightmares and dreams of real girls you won't be able to forget."
"A book we all need to read about little girls and women who are living in parts of the world that most of us never even think about. After reading, be prepared to want to do something to spread the word of the mistreatment of women and children."
"This is a moving and inspiring collection of personal stories about real girls from Asia to Africa surviving violence, abuse, discrimination and injustice . . . and the role of God's hand in turning lives of desperation into lives of hope. Strom and Rickett make the facts and sociocultural realities of their worlds come alive, and they challenge us to question our own assumptions about whether or not any single person can make a difference. . . . Everyone's help is needed to truly end this oppression and abuse."

    This book is a real eye opener about the atrocities that are being perpetrated by males around the world, and in our own neighbourhoods, against women and female children/babies. Most in the name of religion.

    Everyday I count my blessings being born where I was and being born in a free country where women have human rights.

    This is a powerful book! It is not the easiest read because of the horrible abuse heaped on so many women and girls around the world, but it is one that needs to be read. One of the best parts of this book is the encouragement to be a part of the solution by taking specific steps to make a difference in the lives of millions of marginalized women and girls around the world. Great book to give to other women and girls in your life.
